    ****!!!!!
    Could be a fun project.

    Ok, confession time. 

    I’ve actually spent all my years searching for the perfect representative for the classic .270 Win. 

    I haven’t found it yet. Maybe one day. 
    Winchester 70 or a classic Mauser...
    I’d prefer a Mauser. 
    Then you will like what I picked up...

    If you ended the evening by buying a .270. . .

    The "fine" aged liquor probably came out of a backyard still yesterday. . . 

    The Cabernet probably came out of a box. . .

    The coffee was probably Sanka or Taster's Choice. . .

    You should probably be expecting onset of e-coli symptoms from the Steak-Ums. . .

    And your "witty conversationalist" was probably a bi-polar meth head.

    Time to seriously reconsider your choices. :D
    I know, I REALLY have to start making better life choices...

    You need new buddies..........ones that dont let you do what you did and have at least some semblance of morals.

    Edited to add: Is this 'buddy' a 270 owner?..........Does he even exist?...........or is your first post just a made up story to cover the fact that you are 'coming out of the closet' so to speak........

    Enquiring minds and all that......
     


    I'm not giving up my favorite drinking partner.  He's a retired dentist and his wife is an AWESOME cook and they are two of the nicest human beings I've ever met.  Actually I've known them for over 15 years...  Unless I've been drunk that long and this is just an ongoing delusion...

    HA!!!  And they only want you to not drink and drive!  The law should prohibit drinking and shopping too...

    Yeah, yeah, yeah.  Funny thing is I was just looking for a donor action when this came up.  My luck is every time I buy a "donor action" I end up with a stupid accurate gun that I can't bring myself to take apart.  That's how I ended up owning a bunch of 30-06s.

    Got any other aberrant behaviors that surfaced lately? Might be a sign of Coronavirus you didn't know you had that is messing with your ability to make good choices. If it isn't then it's at least a plausible excuse for this odd predicament in which you find yourself if asked why you bought it.

    GunNut bought a .270 Win. rifle! :D:D:D:D:D I couldn't help the :D 's. At least that niche is filled now.  :)

    Pretty much...  I made a bid for a "donor action" and then I got offended that someone bid more than me...  That's just crazy **** right there...

    I will say I've never owned a gnat rifle...  Now to convince the little buggers to stop buzzing around long enough for me to aim...

    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I interpret that as you are still looking for a donor action!! B)

    Maybe. I will test fire it and if it sucks it will become something else.  If it's an accurate gun I'm back to searching... :'(

    Why not just search for actions, then you can really make it into what you want.
    Remember the one I put together?

    Guess what cartridge it is.

    Because every time I find an action it seems like the owner wants more than what it's worth.  I seem to have a knack finding cheap complete rifles all over the place...

    That's a good looking rig!  Let me guess 30-06  :D

    I need to find the strength to resist.  I DO NOT need another medium game gun.  Hell I don't need THIS gun...

    Told wife and she just said "happy Fathers Day!"  Did I mention I love my girl?

    Gun is paid for and my C&R is in the dealer's file as of this morning.  Hopefully it'll be here this week.

    I have a Mossberg 500 coming that way:  drank some bourbon, watched CNN, decided I needed a home defense shotgun.  

    Since I couldn’t find one, I bought a turkey version with a 20 inch barrel.
